Pope Benedict XVI said he hopes the Vatican's new YouTube channel will enrich a lot of people and help them find answers to their spiritual yearning. The Vatican launched the channel, www.youtube.com/vatican, on Friday as its latest effort to use new technologies to get its message out to the masses. Benedict said Sunday, during his weekly noon blessing, that "wise" use of such technologies helps promote the search for "the true, the good and the beautiful" across borders and ethnic divisions. He said he hoped the YouTube channel, which features clips of papal activities, will enrich a wide range of people "including those who have yet to find a response to their spiritual yearning" by letting them learn about Jesus.
